Building a home inside away from the elements makes abundant sense. The obvious reason is weather and the havoc it can play if a home is rained or snowed on during the framing stage of construction. Here are some of the things to consider when building your next home.
Rain and untreated wood do not mix!
Weather is the enemy of the new construction homebuyer. If you choose to build on-site you may be putting your home in jeopardy and dealing with problems later on down the road. Rain and untreated wood do not mix. Wood warping could be a major problem that you can visibly see in the finished home product. The end result of a home that has seen significant rainfall during the framing stage is a house with walls, floors and ceilings with obtuse lines and angles.
MOLD, the other 4 letter word
An even larger issue than warped wood is mold. Mold is the curse of site building. There are huge health implications but in terms of cost, “overall, a typical mold remediation project to remove mold from the ducts, crawl spaces, walls and attic of a house runs around $2,000-$6,000. If it is determined that mold is widespread throughout the home, it can cost you the entire home or at the very least repair costs can total to as much as $10,000-$30,000 or more.” This is according to home.costhelper.com.
These are just a couple of the reasons why building inside out of the weather and utilizing Modular System Building with Rochester Homes just makes sense versus building onsite.
